We were down during Hermine and made the most of the Labor Day Weekend. The kids enjoyed the pool and the kiddie pool was a great amenity for our youngest. Being a short block from the beach and boards we did not get in our car until we departed the Wildwoods.

The rooms were clean, the pool was just the right size for a small motel. The staff was very accommodating. One block to the boardwalk, 1 block to the Marvin Diner. All in all a great week! Can't wait to go back.

Seriously terrible. Don't stay here! When we arrived we waited in the office for over half an hour before someone showed up to check us in. The rooms are shabby and unclean, the beds are hard as a rock and look like they've never been cleaned underneath. Our room reeked of cigarette smoke even though it was supposed to be...

We had a great visit and will most certainly come back. The staff were very nice, the pool was clean and the room was nice for the price. The hotel is only 2 blocks away from the boardwalk. Morning coffee is at the cafe 1/2 block away.

This motel has absolutely tiny rooms and terrifying parking options. The beds are "crunchy" and the towels are very rough. Much of this can be "explained" by its location - a one-block easy walk to the Boardwalk's south entrance. What can't be explained is its price -- very high for what you get. The office staff is somewhat helpful to...

This place was a nightmare. We had to park a block away from our room. The room was dirty, dingy, and dark. Three beds were crammed into a small room. It had one tiny lamp at the far end of the room and a huge rusted refrigerator in the corner. The dresser mirror was leaning against the wall. If all...

Just returned from spending three nights there - DO NOT GO THERE. It's only benefit is its proximity to the boardwalk/beach - 1/2 block. Pass it bye and go elsewhere. There are plenty of other motels that are just as close to the boardwalk/beach and are kept up better. Management is more concerned about their ice cream business than the...

The staff was pleasant but the rooms were horrendous. They were outdated and run down. We noticed a lot of sketchy people hanging out around the motel (not sure if they were guest). The door to the room looked like it did not fit properly as there was a large gap between the door and the ground so we took...

I'm a senior grandma who took her two grandchildren for a mini getaway down the shore. I had booked a room at another motel, but the reservation was lost. I stumbled into the Seashell Motel with two small children , but they were all booked. The two ladies working the desk called around for me, also calling my bank. They...
